We purchased the cabins in the Fall of 2017. We are a small family-run business with Charlie as head of the maintenance department and Andra in charge of reservations, advertising, landscaping, housekeeping, and answering calls, texts, & emails. Sophia helps clean when she's not busy with school & sports. Charlie is also a concrete superintendent and Andra teaches school part-time. We have enjoyed hosting people from all over the USA, and several countries! The cabins were originally built between 1940-1960, when life (& US 31) was much slower and quieter. We offer true roadside lodging for guests traveling through, as well as guests who stay to explore Ludington & Manistee! Our cabins are continually being upgraded, most recently with a new well, septic, windows, beds, and furnishings. Read on to see what some of our past guests have said:

"We had a wonderful experience staying there on our girls trip. Manistee is a great destination and the cabins were very clean. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in northern Michigan."-Betsy & gals, Lowell, Michigan

"Wow! Better than staying at a modern hotel. Very rustic cabins, clean, comfortable. Made accommodations last minute for me and friends, even upgraded us to the three bedroom cabin, which was awesome. Slept for 10 hours, that bed was comfy. I would recommend this place to all my fishing and hunting friends and family." -Ray, St. Clair Shores, Michigan

"We stayed in the Large Cabin and had an excellent time. We had everything we needed and it was relaxing and cozy. I'd recommend Highway 31 Cabins to anyone looking for relaxation and comfort! I'd love to stay here again and the kids are already asking when we can come back!"- Lynne, Michigan

"This was a perfect place to stay after our Lake Michigan crossing on the Badger. We had a lovely dinner in Ludington, stayed a night in the cutest cabin imaginable and then drove on to our destination in northern Michigan."-Judy, Seattle, Washington

"Nostalgic little cabin in a wooded grove..... like motoring down the Lincoln Highway in the 1940's."-Christopher, South Bend, Indiana

"The Highway 31 Cabins were absolutely wonderful! Charlie and Andra were quick to response to my messages and offered helpful information about the local area. My friend and I stayed in the two bedroom cabin. The rooms were clean with plenty of towels, blankets, and pillows. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cozy, convenient place to stay between Manistee and Ludington!" Nicole, Grand Blanc, Michigan

"We couldn't be any more happy with our stay! Andra and Charlie were amazing, the cabin was perfect a close drive to Manistee or Ludington, the small things we forgot to pack they luckily had them provided in the cabin, and best of all our dog had such a great time and was very welcomed on the property which is a big plus for dog owners! We are already planning out next trip back, thanks so much Andra and Charlie!"-Sara, Davison, Michigan

"We were passing through on our way to the UP on our motorcycles. Cabins were cute and host was very accommodating. Will definitely tell our friends in Iowa." Linda, Cherokee, Iowa

"We stayed in the middle of winter, and it was super cozy and warm...great for a weekend getaway. We spent an evening watching the sunset over Lake Michigan in Manistee and entire day hiking in the National forest. I would recommend this cabin for any adventurer who wants to check out Northern/Lake Michigan." Justin, Novi, Michigan

"Tona and I had a great time at this cabin. It was the perfect size for us and there were a lot of options for parks to visit and stuff to do at the beach. The cabin had everything you need from towels to coffee and a nice fire pit outside. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to visit Manistee and the surrounding area." -Angelica, Geneva, Il.

"We are so happy to have found Highway 31 cabins. We recently stayed in one of the cozy cabins and loved it. We want to stay now in the large one."- Anita, Coloma, Michigan

 "We have stayed in the large cabin!! It’s just as beautiful in person!! And the owners are great, down to earth people!! This is one of our favorite places to go!!"-Jamie, Belding, Michigan

"The cabins are great, especially in cooler weather. Charlie and Andra were very accommodating, and very helpful in allowing us to extend our stay a few extra nights after the changing weather changed our vacation plans a bit. We loved these cabins, and would highly recommend."-Zach, New Albany, Ohio

 "We stayed here this past summer and this is a great place an very well taken care of. We made a lot of memories in our short time there."-Angela, Jonesville, Michigan 

"We had a fantastic time. The cabin was small as expected but super cute and clean and the host gave us some great tips on what to do in the area. We were worried about the heat since no air but it actually got quite chilly at night which was wonderful to sleep in. We loved our visit and will be back again!" -Brenda & Todd, Marion, Iowa

"We drove over from Port Huron for a day trip to celebrate our Anniversary. The special weekend rate was a plus as well! So cute & cozy! Lots of things to go see & do, even in the winter months. If we get the opportunity to visit the area again, we will definitely stay here!"-Teresa, Port Huron, Michigan

"Highway 31 Cabins is wonderful. It's right on the highway, easy to find... and there was really not much noise at all from the road. Charlie and Andra communicated really well, and were waiting for us at our arrival. There are so pleasant, friendly, and they had information for a drive to parks/towns that was great. We had Cabin 4-5, and it was very clean and cute. It has two bedrooms with a bathroom between them. Fire pit and picnic table. Perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend this. Thanks for a lovely respite!" Irene & Jay, Madison, Wisconsin

"I just returned with my friend from a four day getaway and it turned into seven day stay!"-Carla, Commerce Twp., Michigan
